‘Organic’ in the Commission’s proposal on market transparency
On 22 May, the European Commission published a legislative proposal on market transparency. This proposal strives to increase and improve market transparency across the supply chain and foster effective conditions of competition along the chain. It wants to achieve this by introducing and enhancing existing price reporting. This proposal aims to enhance the position of producers and weaker actors in the supply chain. Read more in the Commission’s press release.
